I cut potatoes thinly and cook at 400 for 30 minutes in olive oil. You can also make other veggie chips that way. Safe and good. I can't eat processed foods. I'm very sensitive.

For potato chips I can only eat plain Wavy Lays or Kettle chips. I can't eat the Stax because they have soy. For corn chips I make my own most of the time using Mission Corn tortillas. I spray with olive oil, cut with a pizza cutter and bake them on a baking sheet with holes in it at 325 for 12-15 minutes or until crispy. I don't buy the bagged ones very often but I have been able to eat Garden of Eatin blue corn chips, Grande Restaurant style Gluten free and sometimes Fritos. Fritos however made me sick last itme I ate them--maybe I ate too much corn that day? I just threw up about 20 minutes later and had heartburn. I didn't have a gltuen reaction but I haven't eaten them since.

I just looked these up on the internet. I had never heard of them. They look great!

Thanks

Late July Organic chips might be worth looking at. They are GFCO certified, so if lay's staxx work with you, I would imagine these should as well. ( http://www.latejuly.com/ )

I haven't tried them myself, but my son seems to like them. :-)

Both my daughter and I had a terrible reaction to fritos before, too. She's not sensitive to corn much, best I can tell, but we both got our gluten reaction to that one like crazy (before I knew I was super sensitive).

Although I was talking with the frito's company today and the young man said that while they didn't test their products for gluten before, they have started testing them periodically now. It's still <20ppm only, but better than it was!

And the really interesting part. We start talking super sensitivity comes up, and he mentions that one of his good friends is sensitive to lower concentrations than 20ppm, too, and keeps wishing for lower ppm standards.

heh - super sensitives are like ninjas. :ph34r: We are everywhere. :lol:

Interesting to know! So perhaps my sensitive system did detect the gluten and throwing up prevented me from getting the rest of my symptoms. I have reacted by throwing up one other time--when I was a given regualar pasta at Olive Garden and told it was gluten-free. Throwing up that time did not prevent me from getting gluten symptoms however--probably because of the large amount versus just a trace in the Fritos. :ph34r: We need to start the super sensitive ninja club! :lol:

Fritos were sometimes okay and sometimes not when I tried them years ago. I took them out.

Food Should Taste Good chips are AMAZING!!! Like replacement wheat thins! YUUUUUUMMMMMMMMMY!!!

I also like Boulder Canyon Chips. http://www.bouldercanyonfoods.com/

They write gluten free right on the front of the bag! Bless their lovely hearts. And their lovely chips!

And I've never had a problem with the Mission chips either.

It's the small indulgences that we must find that help us enjoy, right? :P

Well, I must revise my above statement. However, eating half a bag of chips is really never a good idea, but what's done is done. Poor Boulder Canyon Chips are now (at the very least) on my caution list, if I can restrict myself to less than 1/2 a bag. So they probably won't be bought again! I did notice an increased selection at the store, and the increase was of non-gluten free items. So oh well. I'm off to go feed my hungry self. Again.

I noticed that no one really mentioned Kettle Brand Chips. It is listed on the back of the package if they are gluten-free or not. I think my husband does well with those but after reading the posts from people I wonder if we are monitoring his diet close enough. He is having tests run this week because he never feels well anymore. It's almost hard to pinpoint if he's been contaminated unless he has the specific symptoms that we know very well.

My daughter,a super sensitive, had problems with Kettle chips. The rest of us didn't try them. I got them because they had been recommended for super sensitives. I noticed that they make both gluten containing chips and gluten free chips. Does anyone know if they are made in separate facilities?

Did your husband do well when he first went gluten free? I did very well for close to 2 years,but have really struggled for quite some time now. If our patterns are similar, maybe we could help each other figure this thing out.

I have problems with Kettle brand chips but I've determined it's safflower oil that is the problem for me, not gluten per se. I have trouble with any chip that uses safflower oil.

What I think is that safflower oil may be harvested on gluten-contaminated harvesting equipment or some other method of contamination of the oil Or it could just be the oil itself, but I don't have trouble with other oils.

Called 'em a few weeks back and they said their gluten free chips are made in a gluten-free facility. Every batch tested to <20ppm. Something new since I called a couple years ago is that they now require any company supplying them with flavorings to test the flavorings as < 10 ppm before the company will accept them.

That said, my daughter will get ill off of these too, if she eats too many. A small bowlful seems okay, but she's had 1/2 a bag before and started reacting.

My kids have tried a chip they liked, called Laurell Hill, nacho flavor, that they said reminded them a lot of the Doritos chip that they used to have. This kind:

Laurellhillfoods.com

These chips are GFCO certified, so they should be less of a cc risk than Doritos. :-)

Any other super sensitives doing ok with Lays Stax as GFreeMO mentioned? I would be in heaven if I could find a potato chip that works! As a side note, I made my own potato chips using canola oil. Had gut pain the next day. Might need to try other oils. I've noticed some debate about oils from time to time on this site. The oils may be the source of cc in chips. dilletantesteph has mentioned that she uses olive oil. Will try that next.

Somepeople just LOVE their chips!!! :wub::lol::rolleyes:

    • Weird things people have said
      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.  
    • Recovery?
      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both. 
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
